E7
My Grandaddy was a railroad man 
                            B7      E
When I was young he took me by the hand 
E7
Drugged me to the station at the break of dawn 
                                       B7        E
Said "boy I got to show you somethin' 'fore it's gone" 
        A7
She was blue and silver - she was right on time 
   E                            B7     E
We rode that Texas Eagle on the Mopac line 

SOLO

E7
We had some sandwiches that Granma packed 
                         B7         E
We rode to Palestine and hitchhiked back 
E7
Home in time for supper with a tale to tell 
                                           B7      E      
That night I dreamed I heard that lonesome whistle wail 
A7
When I got old enough to ridee the train alone 
E7                                 B7  E
I'd ride that Texas Eagle up from  San Antone 

SOLO

E7
Nowadays they don't make no trains 
                                       B7     E
Just the piggyback freighters and them Amtrak things 
E7
They shut the Eagle down awhile ago 
                                B7  E
Sold it to the railroad down in Mexico 
A7
But every now and then that whistle's on my mind 
E7                                 B7    E
I ride that Texas Eagle ‘cross the borderline
